Rimbey RCMP deal with suspicous activity complaints

RCMP recover stolen vehicles

In the last week, Rimbey RCMP responded to 39 calls for service. These files include, but are not limited to: three break and enter investigations, four recovered stolen vehicles, three suspicious activity reports, and four theft related occurrences.

On February 3 officers attended a suspicious activity complaint after a report was received of a vehicle stuck on a lease site road. A tow truck had been called by a friend of the driver but when the tow truck arrived there was no one around the vehicle which aroused suspicion.

While officers were enroute the vehicle became unstuck and was attempting to leave. The gate on the lease had been shut and officers arrived and found the SUV and licence plate were both reported stolen from Carstairs in late December.

The male driving the vehicle has been charged with possession of property over $ 5,000, possession of property under $5,000, and he was also charged with mischief. While the vehicle was stuck the male had walked to a nearby farm and caused damaged to a vehicle that was parked at that residence. The male is to appear March 6 in Rimbey Court.

Also on February 3 another suspicious vehicle report was received.

A truck was reportedly left parked on the side of the road and no one was seen around the vehicle. Officers attended and found a male walking near the location who said his ride was coming to pick him up. A female in a van came along and advised that she was there to pick up the male, and that the truck belonged to her. The truck was not registered, or insured and the plate did not match the truck. After further investigation it was found that the female had outstanding warrants from Edmonton and was placed under arrest and held for a bail hearing. The female was also issued violation tickets for multiple infractions of the traffic safety act.
